Exchanging School Desks For Smiles:
For years, the children of Jojo at Skuli Ya Msingi Ya Jojo, Pemba, Tanzania, had no choice but to sit and study on dirt floors for their education. No more! CAI donors made the desks possible, bringing priceless smiles on their lips. Sharing a few photos:
CAI Trustee, Africa Representative Murtaza Bhimani and CAI CEO Yusufali visited Senegal, Liberia, and Sierra Leone to inspect CAI donor school projects in poor communities. Read the report and watch some wonderful photos.
Blankets Save Lives:
Winter is around the corner and CAI is mobilizing for the annual winter blankets drive to help those vulnerable survive the bitter cold, especially in central Afghanistan, where the snow and ice will kill.
Let us help a poor widow with young children or elderly parents survive this period with a simple warm blanket at US$25 each. CAI plans to distribute at least 2,000 of these in Afghanistan and Yemen. Allah bless.
This Is How CAI Economically Empowers Widows:
